Fans of the Elder Scrolls series, or RPG-aficionados who happened to miss the second instalment, Daggerfall, can download it for free from the official Elder Scrolls site, although you must also run an emulator and have a computer with sufficient power.
A price-comparison isn’t necessary when a game is free, and neither is mention of delivery cost, seeing as how you download it directly to your computer! A few caveats remain, however, with an age restriction limit, as Daggerfall is rated M for Mature, and your computer must be equipped with the site’s proprietary emulator and be powerful enough to run the 13 year-old game. The minimum system requirements demand at least 8MB of RAM, 50MB of HD head-space, a 256-Colour VGA graphics card, and a 66 MHZ processor with Direct X 2 compatibility.
The sequel to Elder Scrolls: Arena, Daggerfall had the largest game-world of any Elder Scrolls game, past and present, with an estimated 161,600 square kilometres of Tamriel land to explore, stuffed with cities, villages, forests and dungeons.
Daggerfall is a typical Elder Scrolls game. It follows a mute protagonist, an errand boy for the Emperor, who uncovers a secret plot to unearth a powerful god and perhaps resurrect the Underking himself! It’s a well-told story, although visually it’s a bit dated by today’s standards. However, the core appeal of an Elder Scrolls game is present here, with countless side-quests and memorable moments lurking in the code. Daggerfall even has six different unique endings, depending on the player’s decisions.
